Tennessee Airport Awards

Each year the Tennessee Aeronautics Commission (TAC) and TDOT Aeronautics Division recognize excellence in airports and airport managers throughout the state with the issuance of select aviation awards. The TAC and TDOT Aeronautics Division present these awards to commend recipients for their hard work, diligence, and dedicated efforts to improve airports, airport safety, and aviation in Tennessee. The awards, in a small way, reflect the respect and appreciation that the TAC and TDOT Aeronautics Division maintain for the many airports and airport managers within the state that have committed themselves to excellence in aviation and aviation safety. The Tennessee Aeronautics Commission and TDOT Aeronautics Division present the following annual awards:

Airport of the Year
Governing Body of the Year
Airport Manager of the Year
Career Contributions to Aviation (may not be presented on an annual basis)

And a new award for 2020, the People's Choice Award.
